A therapy technique for inner awareness and meaningful change.
Drawing on mindfulness, body psychotherapy, and positive psychology, focusing—used in conjunction with any therapy type—teaches clients how to identify their inner awareness or “felt sense” to spur real change and therapeutic progress. This clinical guide explains its core principles, how to incorporate it with other treatment modalities, and how to use it to treat a range of client issues.
Ann Weiser Cornell, PhD, the founder of Inner Resources, has been teaching focusing for more than thirty years. She lives in Berkeley, California.
